This book is about the process and, more generally, about the
opportunities that peace research and the teaching of conflict
resolution can offer academic diplomacy. As such the book is both
an empirical and a theoretical project. While it aims at being the
most comprehensive analysis of the conflict in West Kalimantan, it
also launches a new theoretical approach, neo-pragmatism, and
offers lessons for the prevention of conflicts elsewhere. While
being based on the classical pragmatist theories of truth and
explanation, the approach developed in this book incorporates the
complications to social science theory caused by the 'discovery' of
socially constructed realities, and concepts such as speech acts.
Yet, instead of just theorizing speech acts and social constructs,
the theoretical mission is to offer pragmatic, detailed, concrete
prescriptions of what to do to deconstruct realities that threaten
peace by the means available for research and scholars of peace.
